A simple recipe that goes from pan to table in just minutes, but will have your dinner guests begging for more.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 teaspoons of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoons of lemon pepper
  • 2 six-ounce salmon fillets
  • 1-2 tsp lemon juice, to taste

Great, easy recipe - I used limes instead of lemons & Mrs. Dash served with quinoa & brown rice. Great, especially if you are dieting.

This recipe was really quick and easy. I didn't use a non-stick saucepan, but would another time as a little bit of the salmon got stuck to the bottom while cooking. Served with basmati rice, garnished with parsley.
